GUY HATCHARD: PANDEMIC OR A BAD CASE OF MEDICAL MYOPIA?
IF YOU ARE WONDERING IN YOUR SPARE MOMENTS WHY THE GOVERNMENT HASN’T TWIGGED THAT MRNA VACCINATION IS DANGEROUS AND INEFFECTIVE, BE ASSURED THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOOK FAR FOR THE CAUSE—MEDICAL MYOPIA.
First, a quick update on the latest NZ covid data. The vaccinated continue to drift into negative immune territory, including the boosted. The unvaccinated are gradually making up a smaller and smaller proportion of cases and hospital admissions when compared to their population numbers.
The long term trend of covid deaths is shown in this graph:
The implication is that the very small effect of vaccination and boosting wears off rapidly and tends to zero within 8 weeks. More importantly as the boosting effectiveness wanes, it leaves the recipient more vulnerable to serious illness and death than they were before vaccination.
Reading these graphs is not difficult and they are official figures. So why, every time we turn on our television, are we still seeing adverts encouraging us, our children, and our whanau to get boosted and stay safe? Are the government and their medical advisors really so blind to reality?
THE LONG HISTORY OF MEDICAL MYOPIA
In nineteenth century London tens of thousands of people died of cholera. In 1854 Dr. John Snow discovered through careful epidemiological research that cholera was caused by contamination of drinking water. But cholera continued to rage in London for decades afterwards because government medical officials and the supposed scientific elite insisted against all evidence that it must be caused by contagion and smells.
Thalidomide was prescribed for pregnant women for a decade while birth defects, occurring under the very noses of doctors, continued to be dismissed as unconnected. Something that was missed due to an unquestioning faith in novel pharmaceuticals.
Even in the 17th century, it was realised that doctors can have limited ability along with financial motivations which override caution. To counter this, Henry VIII proclaimed the Herbalists Charter to protect the use of natural remedies and allow for the right of medical choice in perpetuity:
“The guild of doctors have small Cunning yet they will take great sums of Money, and do oftentimes impair and hurt their Patients, rather than do them good. Therefore for the Ease, Comfort, Succour, Help, Relief, and Health of the King’s poor Subjects now pained or diseased: Be it ordained that at all Time from henceforth it shall be lawful for every Person having Knowledge and Experience of the Nature of Herbs, Roots, and Waters, or of the Operation of the same, by Speculation or Practice, within any part of the Realm of England, or within any other the King’s Dominions, to practice, use, and minister in and to any outward Sore, open Wound, Swelling or Disease, any Herb or Herbs, Ointments, Baths, Pultess, and Emplaisters, according to their, Experience, and Knowledge without suit, vexation, trouble, penalty, or loss of their goods; the foresaid Statute in the foresaid Third Year of the King’s most gracious Reign.”
THE TRAINING OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS IMPOSES A STRAIGHT JACKET
Doctors are highly intelligent and dedicated individuals selected for their academic ability who undergo long training to diagnose and treat illness. Certainly there are many branches of medicine of great benefit such as modern surgery, but their profession has become dominated by pharmaceutical protocols dictated by large commercial enterprises. These protocols have come to accept marginal outcomes and high rates of adverse effects as acceptable.
Doctors are constrained to strictly follow these pharmaceutical prescribing regimes known as gold standards. Measures of quality of life do not uphold the outcomes of many of these protocols. In other words, the adverse effects of many medicines outweigh their marginal benefits.
Most doctors do not have the time to closely monitor the effects of their medications on wider populations or even to research published data, they assume safety. The advent of novel biotechnology, whose risk profile dwarfs traditional medicine by a factor far greater than fifty, has not changed their outlook or their habit. Most doctors have continued to assume safety, without even the benefit of completed trials. Those who have asked questions or who harbour doubts have faced the prospect of expulsion from their profession if they speak up publicly.
The pandemic has exposed the deficiency of the straight-jacket prescriptive pharmaceutical system to everyone’s cost. Time to wake up. Fortunately many medical vloggers like John Campbell, Vinay Prasad, and Dr. Been who started out by encouraging mRNA vaccination have now changed their tune. In fact no rational person who keeps up with Covid science publishing can fail to notice the extreme dangers it poses.
We have written previously an urgent open letter to doctors—with every day’s new Covid data there are additional urgent reasons to speak up
